Joe Biden has a big problem. And his name is Joe Manchin. Many Democrats in D.C. are obsessed with pushing Biden’s radical plans.
But, even though they don’t want to admit it, many Democrats come from states that don’t want America to become Soviet Russia. So, those Democrats are forced to choose between respecting their supporters or pushing a toxic agenda.
Many of them are pushing Biden’s agenda, dooming their re-election chances. But not Joe Manchin. He has made it clear that he doesn’t not like Biden’s massive spending bill. And he’s making his stance crystal clear.
Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin said Sunday he will not support the $3.5 trillion price tag for the economic bill that would expand the nation’s social safety net and that “there’s no way” Congress can meet the timeline set by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to pass it.
Joe Manchin soured Biden’s toxic socialist agenda by saying he will not support his spending package. With the Senate split, Biden needs every last Democrat to get his agenda done (and avoiding working with Republicans). With just one man refusing to support the deal, Biden’s $3.5 socialist dreams won’t come true.
Unfortunately, Manchin is still a Democrat, and conservatives shouldn’t have to rely on him to hold back the socialist tsunami.
But Manchin wasn’t done upsetting his own party. He called out divisive AOC and her reckless comments.
“And those types of superlatives, it’s just awful. Continue to divide, divide, divide. I don’t know that young lady that well. I really don’t. I have met her one time, I think, between sets here. But that’s it. So, we have not had any conversations. She just speculating and saying things because she wants to…”
He criticized AOC for her attacks against him. Instead of responding to her baseless claims, Manchin rebuked AOC for dividing the party and the country.
Manchin accused AOC of “speculating” about him “because she wants to.” It seems AOC doesn’t know anything about Manchin. As usual, she shooting her mouth off about things she is totally ignorant of.
Not that we’re surprised.
With Manchin stonewalling the left, there is little hope Democrats can’t get their radical agenda done. But they will not stop. It will take a major shift in Congress to assure that Democrats fail at pushing socialism.
And that requires voters to take action.
